I Know You Want To Know - Poem by Ruby Mae Heard

I know you want to know
What i do and where i go

But sweetheart you hang on far too tight
To expect me to be there every day and night
I too have a life and id like to play
My darling i cant be there every night and day

You wont let me speak to any other man
You know thats not fair but ill do the best i can
Ive told you im not perfect and i never will be
At the end of the day all i can be is me

    Simply put and crystal clear because of it. The affectionate addresses and the gentle argument both read very true. (Report) Reply
